    Here is some stuff to check/try...

    Make sure your server meets the requirements
    http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=server-requirements

    If you have an admin panel you can log into to check the logs, check em.

    Try using the daily build of SS.

    If your server is running more than one version of php, make sure that .php pages are run as PHP5. (A simple .htaccess script can do this. If you need, I can share mine.)

    Not sure what you mean by "daily build of SS"
    If I rename "install.php" to "install.php5" I get the details entry form but when I click on "Install Silverstripe" my screen goes blank. Should I rename all php files to phph5 ?
    I would love your htaccess file to try it 'cause I'm now lost.

    Add this code to your .htaccess

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

    What this will do will run all .php files as PHP5. Then you wont have to rename anything.
